well lucky for u previous owner might have drove the car hard and now u got a new engine..
So we bought //M cars for routine daily driving? I could do that with a natural gas Civic and pay $2/gal and drive in the carpool lane. That's just an idiot response. See below.

This is becoming a bit distressing.
Someone should start up a registry. I'd feel a lot better with at least a 100,000 mile warranty on the engine.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
